Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Luke 9 : 51-62
“… and they would not welcome Him because the destination of his journey was Jerusalem.”
The life of Jesus was a separation from the Trinity, birth in a temporary shelter, flight to a foreign country for safety, a somewhat stable youth, a teaching and healing career, and death by execution. Throughout this life He acquired many titles, and with further insight REFUGEE could be added to the list.
As we enter into the restful season of summer, we pray that you, our loving God, will warm our souls with the awareness of Your presence. Light our paths with your word and counsel. As we enjoy Your creation create in us a pure heart and a hunger and thirst for you, giver of all good gifts and Creator or splendor and glory.

Zechariah 12:10-11; 13:1 Psalm 6:2-6-8-9 Galatians 3:26-29 Luke 9:18-24
This is one of those Sundays when we truly need to listen, step back, ponder, reflect, and finally answer the all- important question Jesus asks each of us:
but YOU-Who do you say that I am? This is the real Jesus question,it and our individual answers play a vital role in orchestrating our daily lives.
